      Thank you for visiting my hub and placing your comments farmers wife and Chinemeremz. You can prepare this food with the parathas which are left out when you prepared in bulk.

      But If you want to prepare parathas just for this particular recipe, then I can give you a small tip for preparing it easily(not the original recipe of paratha).

      Use 2 cups wholewheat flour, water and salt and prepare a dough. Divide in to small balls and prepare thin flat breads. Heat a griddle and cook it. Instant parathas are ready... :)

      That looks absolutely delicious. I have most of that in my stock cupboard or growing in pots outside. The only thing I may have trouble with is the parathas themselves but I see you have linked to a recipe on how to make so thank you. Will give these a go sometime :-)

      Hi Ruchi, You have to use more spice according to the original recipe. But I made few changes here because most of us don't eat spicy food much and extra spice is not good for health. :)
